Monsters exist on Earth but have been closely kept under wraps by the United States government for 50 years. It is so secret that the President himself doesn't know of its existence and speaking about its location is a federal crime. Susan (Witherspoon) is all set to get married when a meteorite infused with Quantonium hits her and converts her into a giantess and gives her super strength. The government captures her and puts her in a secret facility for monsters. Here, she meets four other monsters, B.O.B (Rogen) a brainless and talkative experimental tomato that was accidentally brought to life, Dr. Cockroach Ph.D (Laurie) a mad scientist that accidentally converted himself into cockroach-human hybrid, The Missing Link (Arnett) an ugly lizard obsessed with building his physique and finally the super-sized Insectosaurus. Gallaxhar (Wilson) is the evil alien who wants to extract the Quantonium from Susan and rule over planet Earth. With no foreseeable solution, the monster facility jailer, General W.R. Monger (Sutherland) sends the monsters out to save planet Earth. The movie looks a little vague and unstructured and the plot seems like a jigsaw puzzle put together forcefully. The basic foundation of secret monsters residing with humans, is a repetition of Men In Black and hence lacks originality.. All that said, the movie makes you laugh on more than one occasion and finally delivers a good overall package, enough to make a nine-year-old roll in laughter.
Thumbs up: Nice humour
Thumbs up: Unstructured plot
